May The Fourth Be With You All – GameTrailers.com’s Star Wars Game Retrospective May 4, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
I’ve long held high regard for GameTrailers.com’s excellent Retrospectives series. They’re incredibly researched, well scripted, well edited and excellently narrated videos which rival television’s quality. A few years ago, GameTrailers was working on an epic-length ten part video Retrospective on Star Wars video games in honor of the upcoming release of The Force Unleashed. Only the Final Fantasy franchise has seen more episodes produced for their own Retrospective. This was an incredible undertaking which took several months to fully release.
I questioned the chronology of the retrospectives, because for some reason GameTrailers chose to feature games based on the prequel series before games based on the original trilogy, even though the games on the original trilogy were produced years earlier. They also lumped together some games that I didn’t think went well together, but that’s just my opinion. The retrospective is still very well produced and has some great information you may not be aware of!
You can watch the entire Star Wars Retrospective here on GameTrailers.com. It is over three hours in length, so make sure to set some time aside before you start watching it.
